Failure...I think not!

We are all amazing people with hopes, dreams, and desires.  All of us are out there learning and trying new things and then sharing our results with others.  We are giving, generous souls who put our hearts into everything.  At the end of the day, we often feel that we haven't succeeded:  we didn't get enough done, our project did not go as planned, we missed a deadline, etc.  We then tend to label these as "failures"....I think not.  They are all wonderful learning opportunities and successes in the making.  To keep you going, here's a list of some motivational quotes.

We learn wisdom from failure much more than from success. We often discover what we wil do, by finding out what we will not do.
- Samuel Smiles 

Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt.
-William Shakespeare

It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.
- Theodore Roosevelt

Only those who dare to fail greatly can achieve greatly. 
-Robert F. Kennedy

Failure is an event, not a person. 
- Edward de Bono

It’s not whether you get knocked down; it’s whether you get back up.
- Vince Lombardi

Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.
- Samuel Beckett

Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.
- Confucius

Defeat is not the worst of failures. Not to have tried is the true failure.
-George Edward Woodberry

There are no mistakes or failures, only future lessons
- Denis Waitley

You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don't try.
-Beverly Sills

It is imposible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not lived at all. In which case, you failed by default.
- J.K. Rowling

Ultimately, we all have to decide for ourselves what constitutes failure, but the world is quite eager to give you a set of criteria if you let it.
- J.K. Rowling

If you have made mistakes, even serious one, there is always another chance for you. What we call failure is not the falling down but the staying down.
- Mary Pickford


So the next time you are trying something and getting frustrated at either the brain cramp you are having, the time you feel that is getting lost, the fact that what you have envisioned as success is not what is occurring...don't give up!  Everyone is cheering for you and is happy just to have you in their lives inspiring them to do the best that they can!
